MN GOP CD6 Chair David FitzSimmons
As if it were not bad enough that members of this writer's Republican Party voted for NDAA, this past weekend rank and file Republicans suffered another betrayal at the hands of our party elite.
This Past Saturday, April 14, 2012, this writer served as a delegate at Minnesota CD6 Republican Convention at the Mounds Views Community Center in Mounds View, Minnesota.
As this writer’s regular readers know, for the past 3+ years this writer has submitted articles regarding the failure of various Government institutions to provide citizens with financial information which is supposed to be a matter of public record:

Apology to the Little Old Ladies of Wright County Minnesota
And for these past 3 years, Wright County has not provided, nor have any of my state elected officials been able to force Wright County to give me all of the information this author has requested. Not my State Senator or Representative, Not the State Auditor nor the State Attorney General.
Not even the MN IPAD http://www.ipad.state.mn.us
The State IPAD agreed that this writer was entitled to the information and said they would prepare a legal brief to that affect. However, this writer would have to hire and attorney and sue the County for the
information in Court.

We can thank all of our duplicitous elected State officials, Republican and Democrat alike, for providing all municipal entities with a way to avoid giving citizens information which is supposed to be a matter public record.
To defeat the duplicity of our elected officials, In 2010 this writer submitted approximately this TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) resolution to his local precinct. It passed but somehow got lost
in the process to be added to the Republican Platform.
“Requiring all Minnesota Municipalities (Cities, Counties,
Schools, etc) to post their budgets and actual revenues and spending on
the internet in layman’s terms with no aggregates over one hundred
Now, at this point, this writer asks the reader if they would think that any elected official working in the best interests of rank and file Americans would have any problem enacting such legislation; especially
given that this financial information is supposed to be public record.
Keep that answer in mind while you read the rest of this article.
In pursuing adoption of this resolution and subsequent legislation, this writer had the 1st Principles of the
Founding Fathers in mind:
The fundamental understanding our US Founding Fathers had in
drafting our constitution, is People under Natural Law have free will,
and are not virtuous by nature. Therefore, governments must be
constructed in anticipation of the nature of man. Acting on this
knowledge, our Founding Fathers built into our Government and
Constitution, various checks and balances.
Amongst these checks and balances were transparency and
accountability. All of our problems today emanate from the slow,
persistent rolling back of the checks and balances, transparency and
accountability our Founding Fathers built into our Government and
Yet somehow, Amy Koch, then the Senate Majority leader and my State Senator would not even try to author or pass this bill. Senator Koch just stopped returning this writer’s calls and emails on this Fiscal
TAR. (Nor on my proposals for Judicial TAR) 2 Republicans Legislators flat out told me in confidence that no one in the Minnesota Legislature wants great transparency.
This year this writer again had substantially the same resolution passed at the precinct level, then passed forward at the Wright County BPOU level. Finally this writer attended the MN CD6 Convention as a

Minnesota Republicans (and Democrats) resist Fiscal TAR
Those were my thoughts.
Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon
what is written here.
Please join with me in mutually pledging to each other and our fellow citizens our
lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to our mutual endeavors of restoring
liberty and economic opportunity to WE THE PEOPLE as our Founding Fathers
envisioned and intended. [Last Paragraph, Declaration of Independence]

At the near end of a long row of tables during Saturday morning, there was a Mitt Romney table with three or four people gathered around, one of whom was angry that the campaign had not called him. Some twenty tables away, far from the entrance to the convention hall, was Ron Paul’s table. In stark contrast to Romney’s table, more than one hundred Nevada delegates gathered around Ron Paul’s table laughing and smiling. Some brought their children as guests to watch the convention and see Ron Paul speak to Nevada Republicans. After four years of diligently preparing for the 2012 Republican state convention, a win would be difficult to take away from these Ron Paul supporters.
Ron Paul supporters came in the door with Ron Paul signs. A handful of Mitt Romney supporters came in the door with “yes” and “no” signs. They would be used to help people at the convention know what ideas the Romney campaign supported and to presumably have them unquestionably follow the command of the sign bearer.
Early in the day, the heads of the Paul and Romney Nevada campaigns were called to the podium and spoke unifying words. The niceties ended there.
Within half an hour, a Republican Party official was scolding the Romney campaign operatives quietly in the hallway, “Why would you pull these stunts half an hour into a convention?”

Walk into the John Ascuaga Nugget in Sparks, Nevada and you immediately see that there might not be a single more fitting place for what will happen Saturday. An 8-inch high, 18-karat gold rooster graces the entrance lobby and has been there since 1962, when the government returned it to its owner, John Ascuaga.
Claiming that it was just too much gold for one man to own and therefore in violation of the Gold Reserve Act, the rooster was confiscated by the Treasury Department. Many had accepted gold confiscation quietly for the 35 or so years that Roosevelt’s gold confiscation act had been in place. Not John Ascuaga.
A drawn out legal battle ensued and ultimately, two years later, the ten men and two women on the jury agreed that the confiscation was unjust. The hard fought battle over the rooster made headlines across the country – as Ascuaga and a jury of his peers told the U.S. government victoriously to mind its own business.
There, near the front door of the Ascuaga Nugget today is the golden rooster, a reminder of the lengths one may go to in order to protect individual liberty from the tyranny of government.
On Saturday, in a vast room in Ascuaga’s Nugget, Nevada Republicans will convene a state convention in which Ron Paul supporters will be the majority. That convention will decide 25 of Nevada’s 28 delegates to the Republican National Convention. These Ron Paul supporters are battle-hardened warriors who have been through much political fighting over the last five years and have largely come out the victor.

Newt Gingrich ends his White House dream today with his political committee facing a mountain of debts -- owing about $4 million to scores of businesses and campaign workers around the country who fear they will never get paid.
Campaign watchdogs said the size of Gingrich's debt is extraordinary -- and could have been avoided if the candidate and his team had been more disciplined.
"He was reckless in running up these bills, especially in the last month or so of the campaign when it was quite clear that Mitt Romney would be the nominee," said Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist for the watchdog group Citizen Union.
The campaign has been dogged by financial problems since last summer, but its cash crunch accelerated in recent weeks. It finished March with $4.3 million in debts, an
alarming increase from $1.5 million at the end of February, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
The campaign raised $1.6 million in March, spent $2 million and reported having $1.2 million cash on hand.
Help may be on the way. USA Today reports that Gingrich, in an interview, said he is embracing Mitt Romney's candidacy, and Romney and the Republican National Committee have offered to be helpful in retiring Gingrich's debt.
